Avoid Immigration Scams

Many people offer help with immigration services. Unfortunately, not all are authorized to do so. While many of these unauthorized practitioners mean well, many of them are out to scam you. This is against the law and may be considered an immigration services scam. Learn more about avoiding immigration scams and how to protect yourself.

Filing Information

Follow the instructions on the form(s) that you are filing.

Field Office Services

Field Offices handle a variety of functions, many of which you can complete online. We suggest you Ask Emma for more details about what you want to accomplish. Many times, you can complete your task via the Internet. For example, you can get Green Card help, Employment Authorization Documentation assistance, Adoptions or Citizenship information, or download forms.

Attorney or Representative Procedures

If you are an attorney, you must make an appointment with the office that has jurisdiction over your client’s residential address. You must make a separate appointment for each client you wish to discuss.

Becoming an Accredited Representative

If you are not an attorney and wish to provide the public with immigration services, you must be authorized by the Department of Justice (DOJ)'s Office of Legal Access Programs (OLAP). More information is available on how an organization can apply for recognition and accreditation at the District Office.

Prohibited Items

Federal law prohibits weapons like firearms, knives, pepper spray and ammunition at any USCIS facility. Even if you have a permit for a firearm, you cannot bring it to a USCIS building. Please check your purse, briefcase, or bag and remove and safely store these items before your visit. Violators may be subject to fine and/or imprisonment. Please see Title 41, Code of Federal Regulations, Subpart C for more information.
